I had some lovely Debbie Bliss Cashmerino yarn in the stash. It was perhaps a bit decadent knitting dolly clothes with it, but it felt so lovely and soft. I started with the hat, it's knitted on the flat, a smaller version of the Where's Wally that I made for my son. The dress is all one piece, knitted from the bottom up. It's basically a tube with holes for the arms, and a seam up the back. I reduced every three stitches to gather in the skirt.
I think it's a much nicer outfit than he/she (completely smooth down there) came in, which was a polyester dressing gown thing. Next up is a coat, as daughter has expressed misgivings about the sleeveless nature of the dress, and is concerned that 'baby dolly might get cold'.
